THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED
Due to the current Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak RPAC will be temporarily closed as a precautionary measure to protect our audience and artists, and to help in efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.
As a result this event will not be going ahead.
The RPAC Box Office will be in contact in the next 10-15 business days to offer a refund, or you may wish to transfer your booking to another performance at RPAC later in the year or take a credit note.
There are a large number of events that have been impacted by this temporary closure, so we ask for your patience while we work through ticket transfers, credit notes and refunds. For more information visit the RPAC COVID-19 update page HERE >
Heart-stopping acrobatics that test the limits of strength
Backbone examines the various perceptions of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness will test the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.
Backbone was the winner of the 2018 Australian Dance Award for Outstanding Achievement and was nominated for three Helpmann Awards in 2017. This is Gravity & Other Myths’ third work and follows the huge international success of their last work, A Simple Space.
‘Circus, as you’ve never seen it before, pushed to its conceptual and cerebral limits. A genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza … so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human.’ InDaily
‘The excitement of circus at its best combined with the grace and choreographic line of dance’ The Sydney Morning Herald
